Pasadena Spine Adjustment – Best Chiropractic Care
FAQs about Pasadena Spine Adjustment
I heard that once you start chiropractic care, you have to go forever. Is that true?
No. You only need chiropractic care as long as you want to maintain your brain – body nerve connection as open and clear as possible to keep your nervous system strong. Many of our practice members CHOOSE to continue chiropractic care after their initial health issue is better because they see the difference in their health, their energy, and their overall sense of well being. The best chiropractic care advice is to maintain alignment throughout the years. The choice to continue is always yours, however, as for myself & my family we do advocate chiropractic care for life. the number 1 reason to get adjusted on a regular basis is to add 10, 20 or more healthy years to your life. I plan on still climbing mountains when I’m 120! How about you? Funny, no one ever asks the dentist this question.
What is an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is given to align the spine to take pressure off the spinal cord and nerves. This will restore proper nerve supply to the body’s organs and allow normal body function. An optimum functioning spine equals optimum health.
How does an adjustment feel and how long will it take?
When looking at Pasadena spine adjustment procedures, you may see all sorts of wild promises about pain-free treatment and instant results. People report that being adjusted feels great. However, in some cases the individual may be sore the first couple of times. An adjustment takes only a minute or two, but the vital nerve energy it release can last for hours, days or even weeks depending on your condition.
How long until I feel better?
Everyone is different. We wish we could somehow predict how fast your body will heal, but there are several factors involved. Our focus is to remove any blockages to your body’s nerve supply caused by spinal shifts called subluxations. All cellular repairs are controlled and coordinated by your central nerve system. Therefore, our goal is to maximize expression of life through the adjustment. How quickly this translates into you feeling better is different in each person based on things like degenerative changes, your exercise habits, stress levels, diet, and the number of medications you take, just to name a few variables.
Is Chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic is vastly safer than any drug or medical procedure. Chiropractic malpractice premiums are miniscule compared to those paid by M.D.’s. As elsewhere, in Pasadena spine adjustment poses no medical risks. When a chiropractor makes a mistake, nothing (as opposed to a good result) happens, or one might end up a little sore. Compare this to these frightening statistics for the other team. It has been estimated that over 100,000 people die each year in this country from prescription drugs taken in the controlled medical environment, the hospital. About 2 million hospital patients a year (between 5 to 10% of the hospital population) acquire a nosocomial (from the hospital) infection, from which there are between 100,000 and 300,000 deaths. It has been estimated that there are between 3 million and 6.25 million unnecessary surgeries annually, resulting in between 40,000 and 83,000 unnecessary deaths. Prescription errors are skyrocketing.
What research has been done on Chiropractic?
Literally thousands of health studies, including research by the U.S. government, have shown that Chiropractic is beneficial in maximizing health, boosting immunity, helping your body to heal itself and relieve the symptoms of sickness and disease, and restoring normal function back to the body.
Should I be adjusted if I am sick?
An adjustment will help your body regain control and balance to better fight off your condition. It will help boost your immune system to help fight off the sickness.
Can I be adjusted if I have had an operation on my spine or have old, weak, brittle, or broken bones?
There are many very gentle techniques that can be employed to assure proper safety for newborns to the elderly. No matter what your condition is you can get better.
Can I be adjusted if I am pregnant?
For normal development of the baby and ease & safety of the birth, being adjusted during pregnancy is not only safe, but essential.
Can I adjust myself?
Even chiropractors need chiropractors to adjust them. The worst spines are those of people who manipulate their own spines. Manipulation can even be dangerous. An adjustment moves a specific bone in a specific direction.
Do you accept insurance?
The real question behind “Do you accept insurance?” is, “Can I afford you?” In our practice, the answer is a resounding YES! Our plans are designed to suit any budget. We definitely have the plan that’s right for you. Please don’t base your health on what your insurance pays. If you want chiropractic I’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen for you!
Why don’t more chiropractors practice like you?
Most chiropractors don’t even know this model of care exists. Many chiropractors follow the management gurus who teach them the “Chiropractic Dance” of high fees and expensive care plans. I have simply found a way to deliver regular chiropractic care at affordable fees and help people come up to a level of health they heretofore haven’t even been able to.
Do I need X-rays?
Most of the time you won’t. X-ray radiation is a toxic stress to your body. I will only x-ray you if I think it is necessary.
Does Chiropractic really work?
Of course! It has been working for over a hundred years. Chiropractic care continues to work for my practice members both here and abroad. I invite you to talk with some of the people who have achieved improvement in various areas of their lives by using chiropractic as a health maximization tool. (see Testimonials.)
Would children & babies see a chiropractor?
Yes. Having your babies and kids checked by a chiropractor is very important since babies get out of alignment during the birthing process. A small injury in a child left uncorrected will begin to degenerate and may not show up for 10 or 20 years. Chiropractic is completely safe for babies and kids. What is not safe is allowing your child to grow up with the same problems you are experiencing. My kids have been getting adjusted weekly since birth. The best way to discover the difference is to experience it for yourself.
Chiropractors are quacks! “I tried Chiropractic, and it didn’t work.”
Yes, there are chiropractors that are quacks, thieves and lunatics. However, there are medical doctors that are quacks, thieves and lunatics, but they “blend in” better. If you went to a bad dentist, you would look for another one rather than waiting for your teeth to fall out. If your plumber couldn’t fix a broken pipe in your house, are you going to let your house flood? No! So, if you have been to a bad chiropractor, find a better one-someone that better suits your needs.
